With Mobile World Congress just around the corner, we're getting ready for a stack of announcements from most of the big smartphone vendors. And at the top of the list of new phones is the Samsung Galaxy S9. Samsung's flagship smartphone sets the agenda for many of the others and is part of the Korean manufacturer's ongoing game of catch-up and leapfrog with their main rival Apple.

What can we expect from the Galaxy S9? Let's take a look at the most credible leaks and rumours.

Last year, Samsung introduced an innovative new product to the TV buying public dubbed 'The Frame'. These Yves Behar-designed models attempt to make TV panels feel less like technology and more like art. Boasting a minimalist construction and ultra-thin bezels, each unit resembles a jumbo picture frame.

Originally only available in 55-inch and 65-inch iterations, you can now snap up a 43-inch model which is better suited for the bedroom (and kinder to your wallet). Here are the details.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

If you made it through the holiday season without buying a new smartphone (or getting one as a gift) you may be itching for an upgrade. And if you're an Apple fan, go crazy - we probably won't see a new iPhone until late-2018 anyway - but if you're an Android user you should wait, at least until the Galaxy S9 arrives next month.

Even though we're still a month out from the Samsung Galaxy S9's official debut, as usual, in the run up to Mobile World Congress, leaks about Samsung's upcoming flagship phone are starting to swirl. But today, we might have just hit the motherlode thanks to info found by noted smartphone sleuth evleaks (AKA Evan Blass), showing what appears to be the best look at the S9 anyone has found yet.

It's official: prices for solid states drives are bonkers -- in a good way. Especially if you can get one at a discount. Take this eBay deal for a 2.5" 500GB Samsung 850 EVO. Normally $400 (the RRP anyway), it can be yours for the scrumptious figure of $188 delivered.

With the release of the iPhone X this morning, we’re now neck-deep in new smartphones. So what better thing to do then pit flagship against flagship against flagship in a battle for consumer hearts? How does Apple’s, Samsung’s and Google’s number one smartphones stack up against each other? Let’s take a look at the specs.

While smartphones have carved out a really useful space in our pockets, most of us have retained a desktop computer or notebook for "real" work. What if you could have a device that worked as both. Something you could slip into your pocket when you're out of the office but could easily dock and connect to a big screen and a mouse and keyboard. That's the promise of Samusng's DeX - and it looks like it's getting a hefty update to help realise that one device dream.

In the late 1990s, as mobile phones moved from analogue bricks to modern digital handsets, small was king. Manufacturers went on a miniaturisation race that peaked with comedy film Zoolander’s 2001 parody of a 30mm flip phone.

Then Apple brought smartphones into the mainstream with the original iPhone in 2007 – and suddenly people needed a decent-sized screen, just like a computer. The first iPhone had a 3.5-inch screen (which was mind-blowing at the time) but years of phone makers out-sizing each other has taken us to a point now where most high-end devices have 5.5-inch and 6-inch screens.

The headphone jack is an endangered species. Apple got rid of it when they released the iPhone 7, Google laughed at them, and then Google went and got rid of it with their second generation Pixel phones, the Pixel 2.

I’m certainly not laughing, as the headphone jack prepares for extinction. If you just want a great phone with a headphone jack, here’s what to look at.

I've been using Samsung's Note 8 for about a month now. I love the display on the phone and the camera, but I'm pretty much constantly annoyed by the phone's Bixby button.

The dedicated button on the left side of the phone is designed to give you quick access to to the personal assistant. That's great if you want to use it often. However, if you're ham-fingered like me, then you end up accidentally pressing it pretty much every time you try to lower the volume on your phone, or pull it out of your pocket, or when you try to take a picture... really pretty much any time you're holding the phone.

You've seen the contract prices and you might be tempted to sign up and avoid paying big upfront for Samsung's excellent, expensive and explosion-proof Galaxy Note 8 -- but while signing up for a plan may mean more money in your pocket in the short term, you could end up paying much more over the life of the phone. Here's how much you can save by buying a Note 8 outright and choosing the right prepaid plan.

It's been a decade since Apple changed mobile phones forever and today, they announced their latest model - the iPhone X. We've covered all the finer details here, and with Samsung's Note 8 releasing in a couple of weeks, you might be wondering how the two stack up to one another. In a battle of the mobile heavyweights, who wins?
